Hodgson tried to change JT's mind

Published Add your comment

England manager Roy Hodgson tried unsuccessfully to persuade John Terry to change his decision to retire from international football, it has emerged.

Terry, who returns to Wembley on Tuesday morning for the second day of a disciplinary hearing over a charge he used racist language towards QPR defender Anton Ferdinand, had phoned Hodgson to inform him of his decision.

Press Association Sport understands Hodgson tried to persuade him otherwise but Terry - who denies the charge - was adamant it was "untenable" for him to play for England with the FA pursuing the case.
